Looking for plants

I am looking for some plants that are not common to petsmart/petco

I am looking for any small swords (not the giant amazon) and crypt starts. Maybe some hornwort or water sprite (rooted). I have lots of anubias/java ferns already in another tank. I'd be willing to let some go as part of a trade but I've never mailed plants before. Most of my plants are kinda small but I could take a picture. The tank they are in has pond snails in it. I also have some water lettuce in another tank but my gourami has decided to nibble on it so the roots aren't as full as others, but they're up for grabs too. It spreads nicely but not like duckweed.

I am also looking for xmas moss or flame moss. Not really interested in java moss. Maybe some star grass or something similar?

Let me know what ya got and we can see about getting this going :)

I live in Portland Oregon if you're local that's even better!

Unfortunately I had some of that in the past and it just shed all over the place. It's a little too brittle for what I'm looking for.

Hornwort/vals/star grass/xmas moss etc I can't get around here at all. I can get wisteria/water sprite/some java ferns and moss with no problem.

Dang, I'll have to see if I can ever find that locally. I'm getting more ideas for my tanks and I found a picture online of someone's tank that I"m going to do for my new 46 bowfront but I'm almost 100% certain it's going to entail co2 so I'm saving up for a 5lb canister and regulator.. Hoping not to go over $100 so trying to get some cheap plants ...
